Export a portion of a Map File to CAD

I’m trying to ultimately create a Civil 3D surface, from shape files. I only want a portion of the contours to be exported to CAD, since the file is so big.  I’m thinking there must be a easy way to simply select an area and export that area to CAD, then build the a surface from the CAD files.  I’m having problems figuring out how to do that.
